Silk Painting Workshop, hosted by Asher Katz!

Launch Pad is proud to host another fantastic workshop by Asher Katz! Join us for a fun & educational afternoon with:

Introduction to Silk Painting
Thursday, February 2nd at 12:30 PM!

There is simply nothing like painting on silk. As a medium, its characteristics are totally unique. For many who have never tried it, exploring methods of silk painting opens new and exciting creative doors; it offers alternative ways of approaching and thinking about painting. This class explores tradition techniques of silk painting, including the use of resists, dyes vs. paints, antifusants, batik, shibori, discharge, and more. You will not believe the range of possibilities! Each student will have the opportunity to paint a silk hoop using any (or many) of the processes covered. If you have never painted on silk, or if you are curious about furthering your repertoire as a silk artist, you will not want to miss this class!

Asher Katz has been teaching similar workshops for Jacquard Products, “the silkscreen experts,” for several years, and is qualified as both a silkscreen artist and technician. (Check out for more info!)


For a mere $5 you can create your very own silk painting! All materials are provided for you. Just bring your creativity!

If you’d like to participate, please e-mail to register. (registration fee is due at the time of the workshop)

We look forward to seeing you there!
